I never said Daigle is "doing nothing", but yes, we can get his individual assets other places on the team. That much is obvious. The dispute lies with how one evaluates his entire package when inserted into the lineup.

You posted what a single individual - Jon A. Dolezar - thinks. Moreover, unless you or anyone else here can supply some background on why Mr. Dolezar has a well-informed opinion (he's actually seen every Wild game this season?) there is no reason to hold his opinion up as more valuable than a random poster on these boards. And I don't know about you, but I'm naturally skeptical so I am not swayed by just anyone.

I don't know why you sense hostility. I'm curious why what I said is to be interpreted as "hostile." You were referring to people as "Daigle bashers", which could be considered as name calling. Were you intending to be hostile? I assume(d) not.

There is no intended hostility coming from me. That's what the smiley face is for. I think it's funny that anyone would post what you did as support in this "debate", especially by its lonesome (w/o comments/support about how you intend it to be interpreted), because I find it to be a very uncompelling appeal to authority and not useful to the discussion. That's all.

If we agree about anything, I think we should call it (the "hostility") a misunderstanding promoted by the emotionless face of the internet and refrain from aiming below the belt.
